. good morning, everybody! first up today, breaking news out of japan, a possible setback at the nuclear plant, and we have new images of smoke rising from at least one, maybe two, of the six reactors. those brave japanese workers, now being evacuated yet again, efforts to cool the overheating reactor are on hold. the crisis to preventing possible meltdown not over just yet. we'll have the latest from japan in a matter of moments here. >>> in the meantime, another fox news alert, allied forces striking libya again. this is overnight videotape from the u.s. navy, a u.s. coalition launching two nights of punishing air attacks targeting mommar gadhafi's forces, b52 bombers, jet fighters, more than 120 tom hawk cruise missiles, scattering progovernment forces on the ground in libya, the long time leader vowing a long war ahead. good morning, everybody. we've got it all covered for you. what a way to start a weefnlgt i'm bill hemmer, welcome to "america's newsroom". good morning to you martha. martha: good morning, bill. i am martha maccallum. an international air assault, all but crippling l
markets are sending this message. maybe the worst is over in japan, and maybe all the action in libya will not further disrupt the flow of oil. that's why in the last three days, the dow industrial average has gone up 423 points. that's about 3 1/2%. and that's why as of right now the dow jones industrial average is higher than it was on march tenth, the day before the japanese earthquake. and by the way martha, in all likelihood, 20 minutes from now, the dow jones industrial average will open higher still. it's a head scratcher, but it's going to happen. martha: it's fascinating. i guess in this sideways, stuart, you hope that the market, as it often is, is an indicator of things to come. and that stability may be accurately placed, you know. we can only hope at this point. but also merger activity giving a bit of a boost as well, right? >> that helped the market yesterday, that's for sure. at&t wants to buy t-mobile, big merger in the data transmission networking business. that gave the market is boost. but you've got to say, martha, the dow, at 12,000, despite the middle east fight
lot of breaking news this morning. now want to go to japan right now. there are reports that tokeo's tap water is now contaminated with radiation from the damaged plant at fukushima. these are four of the six reactors and there's a question today about reactor number three. this was a reactor that at times had emitted that white smoke that could be the steam that carries those radioactive particles up into the air. this, however, is not white steam. it turns out that it's black smoke, which could indicate another fire of sorts as the water level continues to be an issue, keeping these nuclear rods cool. david piper is on that live from osaka. hello david. >> reporter: yes, bill, that smoke is still pouring from that reactor, the authorities had to evacuate the fire crews that had been cooling down those reactors which are in danger of overheating. they do say, though, there hasn't been any spike in radiation at the plant since the smoke started rising. there's also a scare in tokyo, radioactive iodine in the water in the japanese water is twice at safety levels for infants. parents
. >>> so news today from japan. and new concerns about harmful radiation. officials saying one of the six reactors is now spreading further into the ocean. also, late last night, a 6.5 earthquake, shaking eastern japan, and that briefly prompted a tsunami alert. but how extensive is the radiation in the water and soil? live from oka -- osaka, domic di-natale. >> we're not sure of the radiation leak going the water. there has been an issue, with the the fukushima plant, where the crisis is, it's not that they're not honest, it's the amount of information they don't give us. so they are trying to keep the public very calm at the moment but let's give you the latest details about reactor number two. apparently there are high levels of radiation in a pool of water that is gathering inside an overflow trench, 180 feet from the sea. at the moment authorities are saying that water hasn't reached the sea but we have over the weekend been hearing of higher levels of radiation in the sea level water, coming out of a main drain pipe that leaks -- that exits directly into the ocean off the coast of f
concerns about drinking water in japan. the government warning radiation from that crippled nuclear power plant has made tap water unsafe for babies. the u.s. air force bringing in more supplies to help with recovery operations there. >> the military is -- we are here to try and help people. this is a national disaster. we are here to work with the japanese people to start reconstruction and get sendai and other parts of japan's feet on the ground again. bill: the american relief effort includes 13,000 personnel, 20 ships and 140 aircraft. k.t. macfarland said the u.s. military is the first responders to the world. we found that in japan. heather: in the state of nevada, it has the largest share of illegal workers in the country. it also has the highest unemployment rate at 14%. are the illegals making a bad situation worse? anita vogel is joining us from los angeles. tell us about this new report. >> reporter: good morning. it lists the top states with the highest share of illegal immigrants in the labor pool. you mentioned nevada was the number one state with a 10% share of illegal immi
from japan, right now, the nuclear crisis taking a serious turn for the worse, the government expanded the danger zone around the crippled fukushima nuclear power plant. and there is also fears of a suspected breach in the core of one of the heavily damaged reactors now. i want to show you the map on the screen, there are 6 different reactors, four have been profoundly affected, especially reactor number 3, which has been a major concern for some time now. here's reactor number 3, where they continue to pump any kind of water they can, into it. whether saltwater or fresh water brought in by the tanker trucks. two days ago, we fondled the picture from reactor number 3, now, this is black smoke going up in the air and the reason why we found that significant is because, prior to that, it was just white smoke which would indicate perhaps steam being emitted, from the reactors, which can be controlled and done intentionally. but, black smoke is a different deal. so, 48 hours later now, with the japanese government -- what the japanese government has done is expanded the area where they are
of the last nine sessions, we're going to go up again today. all of the losses, because of japan, the middle east, gas prices, oil prices, all wiped out. we're back on the upside again. martha: i guess they know something we don't know, stuart, right? let's hope. let's hope they have good news. stuart varney, varney & company, good to see you. bill: wisconsin now, a judge there blocking the state's budget law, now for a second time, that judge saying an earlier ruling, placing a restraining order on the measure was either ignored or misunderstood. now scott walker, republican, says the law goes well beyond limiting the bargaining rights of teachers but goes to the core of education and learning in that state. >> one of the things -- things we talk about the budget and trying to work on is putting in a statewide effort to assess the schools, there's a grading system a-f, public, private or charter that allows all parents to make sure they have the tools they need to put their kids in the schools that are succeeding and not in the schools that are failing. bill: so what happens? mike tobin is
towards civil war. bill: 9:34, if morningerk everybody, just joining us, nuclear plant workers in japan, now scrambling to control the threat of radioactive water that's leaking into the ocean water. we hear plutonium has been detect soil samples, but officials also stressing it's a very small amount and not a danger to the public. keep an eye on that story. >>> a u.s. college student out of saudi arabia, pleading not guilty to charges he bought material to build a bomb, 20 years old, accused of planning to blow up targets in texas that includes a dallas home of former president george w. bush. >>> a volks wag -- volkswagen, recalling 1000 jetta sedans, due to a defect in the wiring system that controls the car. 9:35. martha. martha: all right, thank you bill. >>> well, you know, we expect we will see major layoffs for teachers across this country over the course of this summer, so now a major school district says that they came up with a formula that will hopefully evaluate the bonuses for teachers, whether or not they should keep their jobs, all those kinds of things based on test sco
about this being detected outside japan's evacuation zone which we have circled in red for you. the radiation, found about 25 miles away from that nuclear power plant and facility. dominic d-natale is streaming live from osaka, japan. dominic. >> reporter: we are now hearing that we've found higher levels of radiation, some 25 miles from the fukushima plant. remember the exclusion zone is 12 miles at the moment, that is where people are being evacuated from the area, and now it's that 19 miles is being recommended to get people to leave or actually stay inside their houses. it's 25 miles from the plant, and they are going to have to at m point reexamine how contaminated this area is and whether they should extend that but for now the government saying they have no immediate plans to evacuate people from that area despite there being now 4000 times the -- the levels being 4000 times above the level limit. meanwhile, teko says its plans to cover large areas to prevent radioactive dust from being blown away from the plant and contaminating a wider area are put on hold due to bad w
